Members of the Elburn and Countryside Fire Protection District will be on routes 47 and 38 collecting funds to â€œFill the Bootâ€ for the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance Burn Camp â€œI Am Meâ€ on Friday, May 1, from 3 to 7 p.m.
Proceeds of the boot drive will help send young burn survivors to camp this summer. The Illinois Fire Safety Alliance will hold its annual Burn Camp â€œI Am Meâ€ June 14-20, 2009 at YMCA Camp Duncan in Ingleside, Ill.
Burn Camp â€œI Am Meâ€ invites young burn survivors to share their experience while being able to play and not feel self-conscious about how others may react to their scars.
Anyone knowing of a burn survivor who would benefit from Burn Camp â€œI Am Me,â€ or would like further information should contact the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance, P.O. Box 911, Mount Prospect, IL 60056 or call 1-800-634-0911.
